Young adults are continuing to flock to metropolitan areas, and for single city-dwellers roommates have long been a necessary evil—until now.

Feb 24 2015

Young adults are continuing to flock to metropolitan areas, and for single city-dwellers roommates have long been a necessary evil—until now. My Micro NY presents New York City’s first micro apartment complex, and possibly the future of urban living: a building containing 55 units ranging from 260 to 360 square feet. The apartments were designed to avoid a claustrophobic feel and will come with kitchenettes, wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, ceilings over nine feet high, balconies, and big windows. To make up for that small space, a public meeting area, café, common rooftop garden, laundry room, residential storage space, bike room, and fitness space are shared by building residents. Although the units are now absurdly expensive, with studios leasing for around $2,000 to $3,000 a month, housing advocates say that the model could open up many more reasonably priced living options.
